Regarded as one of the mostly visited, trekkers favorite and the most popular short trekking routes in Nepal, Poonhill trek has everything you can expect within maximum 7 days of hike. Starting from Birethati and following the dirt road to Hile, the trail on the first day walk gets you prepared for the mighty uphill to Ghorepani via Ulleri village where you get along with many other trekkers on the way. Walking in the dense rhododendron forest which is also the largest in the world, you never stop getting amazed within every bend, every corner and every narrow gorge of the streams. Early morning walk to Poon hill is tough yet doable as some trekkers find it very hard due to the inclination on the 340 meters ascend- after all, it is always worth it. Grabbing a cup of tea from the teashop at the view point and eagerly waiting for the sun to hit the mountains and taking as much photographs as possible as the color of the mountains change, is one of the best moments of this whole trek. The ups and downs to Tadapani andGhandruk is moderately painful for the muscles and knees but the scenery you witness makes you endure this all. Ghandruk, the large village inhibited by Gurung people fascinates you with a breathtaking view of Annapurna, enchanting local culture and lifestyle as well as variety of lodging/dining facilities offered by the villagers. You can extend the trek towards Landruk and Dhampus or you can opt for Jhinu dada where you can indulge into the natural hot springs to heal your muscles and bones. This trek is suitable for all generations; with family, friends, couples, travel buddies and of course solo to large groups.
